When a girl goes to a tanning bed for a tan, how often would she need to go to uphold a golden tan and pass it off as her own skin tone, meaning she never even lets it fade?
Never is the best answer.
In July, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a working group of the World Health Organization, added ultraviolet (UV) radiation-emitting tanning devices - tanning beds and lamps - to the list of the most dangerous forms of cancer-causing radiation. It joins an assembly of hazardous substances including plutonium and certain types of radium, as well as radiation from the sun.
As someone said:"It is better to look pale and interesting"
This is for a book, yes?
It would depend on race and natural skin tone, and how deep the tan is intended to be.
Isn't there a bad side effect for tanning?
Did you even read the answer from ehBeth above?
Yes, it is for a book.
I do not do fake tans myself, but thanks for the concern!
And if the natural skin tone is not very pale, but the ideal tan is the skin tone of Aishwarya Rai....?
Do it with makeup. There are some great spray tans on the market.
Just FYI - this is Aishwarya Rai.
I'd suggest that the character go for weekly sessions, supplemented with makeup or spray-on, as the results can be uneven.
she's very pink/peach
given my natural skin tone I could never get there by way of tanning - it would definitely have to be makeup
